Saw 3D, the seventh and supposedly final installment in the popular torture/horror franchise, opens with a man cauterizing his severed foot with a hot pipe. The soundtrack, as has been the case throughout the series, is populated with songs that more or less pair well with the aforementioned image, offering up demonic blasts of heavy metal dressed in all of the genre’s myriad disguises. There are plenty of familiar names like Hinder and My Darkest Days and veteran outfits such as Nitzer Ebb and Krokus, but the Saw franchise has always provided a couple of slots for newcomers and underground heroes like Karnivool and Dir en Grey, both of which provide the soundtrack with two of its strongest cuts.
